The NUKS-USA con­fer­ence is the largest an­nual gath­er­ing of Kuwaitis out­side the coun­try and is be­ing held un­der the pa­tron­age of HE the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and the Min­is­ter of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Dr. Bader Al-Essa and the Kuwaiti Am­bas­sador to the US Sheikh Salem Ab­dul­lah Al-Jaber AlSabah who will be in at­ten­dance. More than 3,500 Kuwaiti stu­dents en­rolled in col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties across the United States are ex­pected to at­tend. The con­fer­ence spans three days and in­cludes nu­mer­ous for­mal and in­for­mal ac­tiv­i­ties cul­mi­nat­ing in the elec­tion of the new NUKS-USA Ex­ec­u­tive Team. Ac­tiv­i­ties range from lec­tures and work­shops to a ca­reer fair and sight­see­ing tours, in ad­di­tion to net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

A main at­trac­tion of the con­fer­ence will be the spe­cial raf­fle draw be­ing con­ducted by Gulf Bank on Thurs­day, 24 Novem­ber, where at­ten­dees will be awarded spe­cial prizes dur­ing the raf­fle.

Salma Al-Ha­j­jaj, Gen­eral Man­ager of Hu­man Re­sources at Gulf Bank, said: “This is an im­por­tant an­nual event and Gulf Bank is proud to be spon­sor­ing the NUKS-USA con­fer­ence again this year. Gulf Bank is strongly com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing Kuwaiti youth and to spon­sor­ing ed­u­ca­tional ini­tia­tives that help em­power the next gen­er­a­tion of Kuwaitis. We are look­ing for­ward to en­gag­ing with the stu­dents and to en­cour­ag­ing them to con­sider ca­reers in the pri­vate sec­tor”.

Ha­j­jaj fur­ther dis­cussed ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties for out­stand­ing Kuwaiti stu­dents: “At Gulf Bank, 67 per­cent of our work­force is Kuwaiti, and we are ded­i­cated to in­creas­ing that num­ber by hir­ing the best and most tal­ented Kuwaiti women and men. For those stu­dents con­sid­er­ing a ca­reer with Gulf Bank, they should know that our Ajyal Grad­u­ate De­vel­op­ment Pro­gram pro­vides a path to nur­ture young Kuwaiti tal­ent early in their ca­reers to de­velop them into ‘holis­tic bankers’ and pre­pare them for lead­er­ship po­si­tions at the Bank.”

Gulf Bank is strongly com­mit­ted to or­ga­niz­ing, spon­sor­ing, and par­tic­i­pat­ing in events that ben­e­fit Kuwait and em­power the next gen­er­a­tion of Kuwaitis.
